Examples

Random image:

BooruSharp.Booru.Gelbooru booru = new BooruSharp.Booru.Gelbooru();
BooruSharp.Search.Post.SearchResult result = await booru.GetRandomPostAsync("hibiki_(kantai_collection)", "school_swimsuit");

Console.WriteLine("Image preview URL: " + result.previewUrl.AbsoluteUri + Environment.NewLine +
                  "Image URL: " + result.fileUrl.AbsoluteUri + Environment.NewLine +
                  "Image is safe: " + (result.rating == BooruSharp.Search.Post.Rating.Safe) + Environment.NewLine +
                  "Tags on the image: " + String.Join(", ", result.tags));

Get many random images at once:

BooruSharp.Booru.SankakuComplex booru = new BooruSharp.Booru.SankakuComplex();
BooruSharp.Search.Post.SearchResult[] result = await booru.GetRandomPostsAsync(10, "ifrit_(arknights)", "silence_(arknights)");

Console.WriteLine(string.Join(Environment.NewLine, result.Select(x => "Random Image: " + x.fileUrl)));

Get tag:

BooruSharp.Booru.Safebooru booru = new BooruSharp.Booru.Safebooru();
BooruSharp.Search.Tag.SearchResult result = await booru.GetTagAsync("cirno");

Console.WriteLine("Tag type: " + result.type + Environment.NewLine +
                  "ID: " + result.id);

                  "ID: " + result.id + Environment.NewLine +
                  "Created at: " + result.creation.ToString("dd/MM/yy HH:mm:ss") + Environment.NewLine +
                  "Last update at: " + result.lastUpdate.ToString("dd/MM/yy HH:mm:ss"));

Get related tags:

BooruSharp.Booru.Yandere booru = new BooruSharp.Booru.Yandere();
BooruSharp.Search.Related.SearchResult[] results = await booru.GetRelatedAsync("see_through");

Console.WriteLine(String.Join(Environment.NewLine,
    results.Select(delegate (BooruSharp.Search.Related.SearchResult res) { return ("Name: " + res.name +" (" + res.count + ")"); })));

Get comments:

BooruSharp.Booru.Lolibooru booru = new BooruSharp.Booru.Lolibooru();
BooruSharp.Search.Comment.SearchResult[] results = await booru.GetCommentAsync(134097);

Console.WriteLine(String.Join(Environment.NewLine,
    results.Select(delegate (BooruSharp.Search.Comment.SearchResult res) { return ("Author: " + res.authorName + ", the " + res.creation.ToString("dd/MM/yy HH:mm:ss") + " - " + res.body); })));

Add to favorite:

BooruSharp.Booru.Safebooru booru = new BooruSharp.Booru.Safebooru();
booru.SetBooruAuth(new BooruSharp.Booru.BooruAuth("yourUserId", "yourPasswordHash")); // See https://boorusharp.zirk.eu/#authentification
await booru.AddFavoriteAsync(1759793);

BooruSharp.Booru.Yandere yandere = new BooruSharp.Booru.Yandere();
BooruSharp.Search.Tag.SearchResult[] results = await yandere.GetTagsAsync("tsukiko");
Console.WriteLine(String.Join(Environment.NewLine,
	results.Where(delegate (BooruSharp.Search.Tag.SearchResult res) { return (res.type == BooruSharp.Search.Tag.TagType.Character); })
           .Select(delegate (BooruSharp.Search.Tag.SearchResult res) { return (res.name); })));

Authentification

Pixiv authentification is rather straightforward but for the others boorus you'll need your user id and your password hash
To get it, I advise you to go on an image, open the developer panel (F12) and go in "Network"
Then press the button to add the image to your favorite and look at the "Cookies" section of the last request Authentification
